This is the last post in our Easter Gift Basket Series, the fourth of four. If you haven’t already done so, read Part 1 here, Part 2 here and Part 3 here. Today I will show you how to make the gorgeous little felted Easter Eggs. I have left the cutest, easiest and just all round best craft till last. I absolutely love these little Eggs! I could make them all day long!!!!! I could also go on about how much I love them but I’ll spare you that 4 hour read and just get straight to the tutorial shall I?

Felted Easter Eggs

  1. Cut off a 2gram (0.07oz) amount of wool Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

  3. Have a dry towel close by and dip the wool into the warm soapy water, soaking it completely Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com
  4. Put the wool ball into the palm of one of your hands and gently roll it round in a circular motion, with the palm of your other hand, do not apply any pressure at this stage, do this for a few minuets Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

  8. As the ball starts to compress into a smaller ball, apply a bit more pressure, do this until the ball is quite firm and it holds its shape when squished between your finger and thumb Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com
  9. Dip the wool ball into the clean cool water, soaking it completely
  10. Rub the palms of your hands together in a back and forth motion only on one half of the ball to form the egg shape Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com
  11. Once you are happy with the desired shape, rinse the egg under clean cool water to wash out all the soap
  12. Set the balloons aside to dry overnight (if you live in a very humid area it may take longer to dry) Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com
  13. Using a sharp pair of scissors, trim off the excess fuzz and congratulations, you are done 🙂 Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com Easter Gift Basket Part 4 by EclecticHandmadeCreations.com

 

Easter Gift Basket (Putting it all together)

In each flower basket, nestle in a small handful of mini chocolate eggs, a few Felted Easter Eggs and a couple of String Easter Eggs

I had so much fun coming up with this and putting it all together! I hope you enjoy making some yourself! I actually found that the felted eggs were so much easier than the string eggs, I would have expected it to be the other way around.
